Concept

In the late 1940s, Ilmari Tapiovaara entered a competition to design furniture for the student housing complex at the Helsinki University of Technology. This marked the beginning of a long period during which Tapiovaara would explore combining tubular steel with wood and textiles. Tapiovaara entered the competition with his design for the Lukki Chair. Not only did it win, it went on to form the basis of the influential and highly popular Lukki series.
